    tOfficial All Star game selection

    Comes on 4:30 this afternoon for the Mountain time zone on FOX. Discuss all the snubs and player you don't think deserve to be there. Additionally are the home run derby participants being shown as well?

    Here are my guesses for which players represent those teams that don't deserve an All Star.

    Jesse Crain for the Chi Sox.
    Adam Lind for Toronto.
    Jose Altuve for Houston.
    Jose Fernandez for Miami.
    Kevin Gregg for Chicago Cubbies
    Evereth Cabrera for San Diego.

    Here's the ESPN picks. The majority think the Braves should have Craig Kimbrel and Freddie Freeman there. David Schoenfield said Simmons should be the starter at SS. Buster Olney thinks Minor should be there.

    Don't know who Schoenfield is, but he loses all credibility with his selection of NL SS.

    He's the guy that writes most of the posts for the Sweetspot blog. He's a huge fan of Simmons because of his defense. He's always writing up posts about how great Simmons's defense is. I like his work because he's a big sabermetrics guy. He wrote the really good post explaining the struggles of the Braves outfield a week or so ago.

    upton and harper shouldn't be there. hope the player behind harper takes over 3rd, though i doubt it.

    for the cubs, they will probably pick jeff samardzija, it should be gregg

    I don't recall a pitcher a starting pitcher with a losing record ever being selected to the ASG. One guy that might be it for the Cubs is Nate Schierholtz. He is having a solid season. I know OF is crowded though.

    But just looking at Gregg's numbers it should be him. I didn't know he was having a year that good. Explains why the Braves are potentially interested.

    They said no starters for the Pirates, Diamondbacks and Braves but plenty of representation from those 3 teams. We'll see.
